Up until a few weeks ago, it seemed warm weather would never arrive for the northern part of the United States. Thankfully, it seems spring (and in some places, summer) temperatures have finally arrived and even better, it looks like they are here to stay! However, along with longer, warmer days, comes a need to consider sun safety and the risk of skin cancer.
You may or may not be aware that skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. It is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer since the majority of cases are associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun. May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, so now is a great time to think ahead about how you will protect yourself and your family from unhealthy sun exposure this summer.
